The Hollywood trouser is a Sexton signature, but the design has been around since the 1930s. True to the original, these are cut with generous, flowing lines for an authentic art-deco look. Incidentally, they take their name from the trousers that Hollywood costume departments use to run-up en masse in the ‘40s. Naturally, ours aren’t ‘run up’, but instead are handmade to a Sexton pattern from the best Italian flannel.
Navy Flannel Hollywood Top Trousers
We reintroduced our Hollywood tops in 2016, and now they’re a key component of the Sexton look. This ready-to-wear pair offers a luxurious flannel trouser with a difference. They’re made with a structureless ‘grown on’ waistband and dropped belt-loops that enable them to sit high on the waist and remain comfortable to wear. They feel modern and clean, but carry a touch of art deco Sexton nostalgia. In soft 11oz Italian woollen flannel, this rich navy pair is destined to become your go-to tailored trouser – formal enough to wear with a checked sports coat but relaxed enough to sit with a roll-neck and suede blouson. We’ve chosen this navy because it’s particularly rich – and features elements of black, royal and RAF blue; so it pairs comfortably with other navy pieces, or soft grey and earthy brown checked jackets, too.
